Product UI shows how to review and approve a video with Dropbox Replay

Now everyone can play with Dropbox Replay

All Dropbox users now have access to Replay, our creative review and approval tool for video, images, and audio. This limited version of Replay, available in all plans, makes it easy to mark up, comment, and finalize media. Collaborators can even watch and mark up videos together, in real time, from anywhere with live review.

We’re also introducing the Dropbox Replay Add-On* which offers premium security and collaboration features, including:

  • Increased file upload limit. Files uploaded into Replay are only limited by your available Dropbox plan storage.
  • Auto-generated transcription and closed captions on videos to help you locate frames faster.
  • Centralized sharing controls. Access and password protect all your Replay links in one place.
  • Due dates for reviews. Set a cut-off date to make sure you’re receiving feedback on time, and keeping projects on schedule.
  • Tools for closing finished work. Securely deliver final projects up to 250 GB with Dropbox Transfer, and archive work directly to your Dropbox account for safekeeping.
